Seiko is also from Japan and is one of the most well-known watch brands in the world. It has its own movement and supplies movements to other brands. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1881 by Kintarō Hattori, originally a watch and jewelry store. Eleven years later, it began to make watches with the brand name "Seikosha" (exquisite craft home), but it was not until 1924 that the name "Seiko" was officially established. It is a veteran watchmaking giant.
In terms of quartz movements, Seiko has a long history, and the first men's quartz watch was produced by it, which directly led to the “quartz crisis” in the 1980s. In the development of mechanical movements, Seiko's skills are as strong. For example, in 1968, it introduced a movement with a frequency of up to 36,000 vph (5 Hz), which fully proved the brand strength. Moreover, unlike Meida, which is only a simple product, Seiko has the ability to produce the highest-end complex movement. For example, its former sub-brand GS has many beautiful self-produced movements, and some even have a tourbillon and three questions. This complex function.
Of course, good things always have to be left to the family. Seiko's externally supplied movements are certainly not as good for internal use, but the quality is still up to standard. The most classic example is its 7S26 automatic movement, this movement is equipped with 21 gems, 21,600vph (3Hz) vibration frequency, 40 hours of storage, with date. Due to the high quality and low price, many small brands and Seiko themselves love this movement very much, such as the Seiko 5 SNK809 - with date display, back through, Diashock shockproof, accurate -20/+40 seconds per day Degree, the price is less than 1,000 yuan! The price/performance ratio is really high.
Another equally popular Seiko movement is the NH35A, which is equipped with 24 jewels, 21,600 vph (3 Hz) and 40-hour moving storage with a stop-second device with a daily error of -20/+40 seconds. Emerging brands like UNDONE and Humism or old brands like Invicta are very popular.
